Torrey Pines Scientific has announced new larger EchoTherm™ vibration free bench top chilling incubators that are ideal for protein crystallography and other life science laboratory uses.
The incubators are 100 liter capacity and are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. They have no compressors or CFC's and are vibration-free making them ideal for doing protein crystallizations.
Other applications include incubating marine samples below room temperature, enzyme reactions and deactivations, hybridizations, ligations, storing oocytes, and general lab incubations.
There are two models. The IN55 is fully programmable and the IN50 is simple digital. Chamber size for both is 100 liters. They are settable form 4.0ºC to 70.0ºC and feature PID temperature control to ± 0.1°C, digital display to 0.1ºC, and accuracy to ± 0.2ºC.
They have RS232 I/O port for remote control and data collection, digital timer in hours, minutes and seconds with user settable Auto-Off, temperature ramping on programmable models, and audible alarms.
Chamber size is 24" high by 20" deep by 14" wide and come with eight stainless steel racks with room for twelve. Racks are split, front to back, in the middle for variety of sample sizes.
The units are shipped with universal power supplies that take AC line inputs from 100VAC to 265VAC, 50/60 Hz and converts that to 12 volts DC for the unit, AC line cord for the country of use, user=s manual and full 12-month warranty.
